Purex Crystals Review & Giveaway!


This product was so easy to use! You just add the crystals to the drum of your washing machine before adding in your clothes. You can use all of your regular products along with these crystals. This product made my clothes smell fresher longer. I always use a scented laundry detergent but by the time that I hang up the clothes the scent is no longer with them. I found that my clothes smelled much better even when wearing them after using this product.

January Popsugar Must Have Box Unboxing & Review

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)

The Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box which costs $39.99 per month, BUT all the products you get are full size and the boxes are always worth more than $100! If you love getting surprises than this box is for you!.

The items in the box:

1.) Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask: Super excited to try this out! This seems a lot different than other masks (it is a five minute foaming gel). I always welcome new skin care products.  Value: $40

2.) The Juice Generation Book: This Book has over 100 recipes for fresh Juices and smoothies. However, with the internet having all the recipes I need this book would just be another piece of clutter. I will sell this or give it away. Not a terrible item just one that I personally would not use. Value: $15

3.) Jack + Lucy Tech Gloves: I was super excited to receive gloves in the box since it is really cold out and I only have a thick pair so a thin pair is helpful. What made me even more excited was when I realized they were Tech gloves that work with touch screens. $15?

4.) Rifle Paper Co. 2014 Flip Around The World Desk Calendar: This was not a must have item for me but I put in on my desk anyway. It is cute so even though I would not be upset if it were not in the box I am not upset that it was either. $16

5.) Pipsnacks White Truffle Pipcorn: This was so good that it is already gone! I loved that it is mini popcorn (less kernels get stuck in your teeth)/ I am a popcorn fanatic so two months in a row of getting popcorn makes me happy! $6

6.) Revlon by Marchesa Box O' Files: I hate filing my nails. I hate the sound and how it feels so I will not use these. They are so cute though, I will for sure hold on to them to give as a gift. $3

This box did have less items in it than last months but I liked the products so much better this time around! Alright, so Popsugar made me happy with this box. Always room for improvement but they are getting back to their good old ways! The only problem I have is that the box was so much lower in value than most boxes. The value may be a bit higher since I could not find an exact prize for the gloves, but still only $100 worth of stuff. Even though I am extremely happy with the box, they could have thrown in a few more extras. I mean the box was low in value and had less items. 

 Total value of the box: $95.00  One of the lowest boxes ever in terms of value. Still happy though.

January 2014 Birchbox Unboxing Video & Review

View my Unboxing Video and then come back and read my post :)

Overall thoughts: This box is a 5/5 for me. This is what I expect a $10 Birchbox to be! Was it my favorite box ever? No, BUT the sample sizes were GREAT and the products are all products that I can and will use! They definitely stepped up their game this month!

Inside the box is:

1.) 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara | This is a great sample size black masacara. I will be trying it out eventually. Just do not smell it, it does not smell that great!  Full size, $18

2.)  Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme | I have never tried a Fekkai product before but hear about them a lot. This is a travel sized item, woo hoo! It made my ends look super shiny! Full size, $19.99

3.) Nail Rock Sequin Nail Polish | This is a product that is popular in the UK. I have not tried it out yet, but I hear it looks great but is messy to apply. This is a full size nail polish. Full Size, $6.99

4.) Paula's Choice Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum | Once again a great sized sample item. I am happy to try this out, I have used it once but obviously you do not see results that quickly. I was not using a product like this at the moment so I am happy that I got this!  Full Size, $26.95

5.) Ahmad Tea London Assorted Teas | This is a British Brand. They included three tea bags in the box. I have already tried the Black English No 1 tea and it was delicious!  Full Size, $7

Is this box worth $10: Yes, the items are all big this month and the nail polish alone was worth $7!
Is this box worth my $10: Yes. I will use ALL of the products! This is what a Birchbox should be! No foil packets, no small perfume sample. Birchbox should tell the companies it partners with that subscribers feel jipped getting these items. 

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own and I was not asked, nor do I get compensation, to review the box or these items.

Hershey's Chocolate with Hazelnut Spread Review

Thanks to Crowdtap I had the luxury of trying out one of the new Hershey's spreads. I tried the Chocolate with Hazelnut flavor (they also come in plain chocolate and chocolate with almond). 

I tried the spread with multiple foods such as strawberries, cookies, chips, and rice cripsy treats. My favorite pairings were with the rice crispy treat and with strawberries. I did not have any pretzels on hand but I am sure it is also great with pretzels!

What I loved most about this spread (other than the taste!) was how convenient it was. Usually you have to melt chocolate and end up melting either too little or too much. It is much easier to just scoop out as much as you want for each bite.

If you have not tried this out yet I highly recommend it! It gets an A+ in my book!

PREMIUM Solid Cordz® 1 Foot Extension Cable Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Like many of you I have so many things 
plugged into my computer that I am
running out of spots to plug things in to. The problem is not that I do not have enough spaces on my power strip but more so that one plug usually takes up two spots since it is so big width wise that I can not put something in the slot next to it.

The PREMIUM Solid Cordz were great because they can help free up space on the power strip. Not only are they beneficial for anyone to use but they also come with a LIFETIME 100% money back guarantee.

You can order a pack of 5 on Amazon for $17.99 and the shipping is really quick. They are fulfilled by Amazon so if you spend over $35 on any other Amazon products then shipping is free.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
